Loving it! Great Support **See Note in Review**ProsSpaciousEasy to build inDecent FansGreat SupportCons(Keep in mind, these only pertain to my component choices, results might be different with other components)GPU mountingSSD Cable RoutingGlass Installation/RemovalThis is the 3rd case that I've put most of the same components in. I would have to say that there were very few challenge's to building in this case. The main one was the mounting of the GPU(EVGA GTX1080Ti Black Edition). My motherboard(Gigabyte X470 Aorus Gaming 7 WiFi) has little to no room between the back of the case and where the GPU mounts. So it was a bit tough getting it in and out. I also have a pretty good sized PSU(EVGA Supernova G2 850w), and that made it a bit tough getting the front mounted SSD's cable routed.This case has plenty of room to work in compared to some of the other cases I have owned(Still have them all actually)...lolNow...on to the tempered glass panels.PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE~~If you buy this case be SUPER careful removing and installing the glass panels. They do mount a bit differently than most cases. As you can see from one of the pics above....one of my panels shattered! I thought I had the panel firmly mounted in both the guides on the bottom of the case(you need to insert the panels at a 45 angle to mount them). I guess the back of the panel was not in the guide...and long story short...it shattered and my heart sunk. I had the case for a little over 24hrs.SupportA++ to support at Cougar. I emailed them explaining what had happened along with the pics. They replied fairly quickly and requested the normal info from me. Copy of Invoice and they sent me a RMA form(PDF) to fill out.I responded with the info and a little time had passed...maybe a few working days. I called the number listed on the RMA form and spoke with a young lady who was super nice and helpful. She told me they were working on getting a replacement out to me. A few more business days passed and I was told they were shipping out a replacement. While I didn't get the shipping date and tracking right away, support did respond when I inquired and gave the shipping info.The replacement got here today...and I'm super happy with everything...the case, support, and performance. This case is built for airflow.....which was my main reason for buying.FYI, this is not the first time I've dealt with support at Cougar...it's been a few year's ago...but they still seem top-notch, and like to keep their customers happy.Kudos Cougar! 4As a designer/developer of high end gaming motherboards, I LOVE this case!!!As a career engineer whom used to design gaming motherboards for Intel (from 2007-2011), I can confidently say this is a fantastic case. The case was big enough to have ample room inside for all my components and very tidy wiring for lots of air flow, yet the case was lighter than the steel case I had my gaming PC guts crammed into previously. There are so many options for large fan placement that you can either load it up with LOTS of fans, or take your pick with ~3 fans and be optimal about air flow.I also really appreciated how the case has a fan speed switch right on the outside that I can choose to make use of or not. If I plug into the motherboard 3or4 wire fan headers I'm letting the motherboard decide fan speed. Or I can use the adapters and the case-switch to make my own choices of fan speed. There are definitely times I would rather make the decision myself based on what I know I'll be doing or where I am. So for instance I'm going to do a 1 min skype chat and I need to make my fans shut up for just a min... etc.All the hard drives just snapped/clicked into place without having to do the line-up-screw-holes-while-balance-a-screw-on-the-tip-of-your-screwdriver balancing act. You've all been there, you know what I mean. Click.. done.The power supply is tucked nicely into a little wind tunnel at the bottom and cables pop through nice little rubber gromits to the backside for neat cable management. This is a case to show off your leet style.The only extra effort I needed was I had to extend the 2x4 pin 12v CPU power supply cable so it would reach all the way to the socket on my board. Being an Engineer I just cut the cable and soldered up an extra 6". But For most of you, I recommend either making sure your 2x4 CPU power cable is pretty long or consider buying an adapter to extend it 3-6 inches when you buy this case. At the end of that step I clearly consider it worth the effort because now the power supply and all it's generated heat it kept away from my precious CPU and Video card etc.There is tons of room inside for lighting effects, huge video cards, cooling systems, and maybe a token to bring you back to the real world from 3 levels deep. The window just begs me to put SOMETHING cool looking in there. Blinky DRAM sticks for the win!Final note, Whomever designed this case was obviously a gamer because the handles are well positioned and sturdy for carrying your beast to the LAN party for mad props. Additionally the headphone hanger is a nice touch and adds that touch of class during your LAN-fest. If you see a dude with this at the next PAX BYOC section, say Hi! It might be me. 5Nice looking case is the best thing I can say about it.ProsPlenty of room, but that's almost a given for a full tower case.Front connections and power button are relatively easy to get to.Looks nice.Very large HD LED,ConsBuild quality isn't very good.Only 2 standard sized HD bays.I purchased this case for a new build for my wife. The main feature I was looking for was the angled front panel connections and buttons. This was due to the space the case was going in. While I didn't need more than 2 std sized HD bays, I would have thought that a full tower would have had at least 4. There are plenty of bays for ssd drives or laptop drives, but this is a gaming case and I don't see most people using laptop drives or numerous ssd drives. The case has a plastic divider to keep the power supply separate from the main compartment, but this restricts airflow from the bottom and requires the power cables to loop out through a hole and then back in to the motherboard further up. This means your loosing some of the length just to get them back to where they are going. I just took it out and left it out. The other big problem was on one of the side panels. There were 2 areas roughly 1" in diameter each that looked like corrosion underneath the paint. It looks like the QC department isn't that great.I purchased a CORSAIR GRAPHITE 780T Full-Tower Case at the same time as this one and I really wish I had gotten 2 of those instead of purchasing this one. 2A Great Case!A great case! This is my 2nd Gaming PC build and this case made it easy with good cable routing options and plenty of space. And it's built like, well, a Panzer tank. Lol! But BE WARNED: at the time I purchased this case Amazon had the size specs completely wrong. The case is significantly larger than the measurements shown on Amazon. As a result, I was barely able to fit in the space I had allocated for it. But that is not an issue with the case itself, just the Amazon listing - but be aware of it - size specs are actually: 10.5" W x 24.1" H x 22" D. I highly recommend it especially if you want plenty of space to work with. I used an ASUS Crosshair VI Hero MB with an AMD Ryzen 5 1600x CPU, ASUS ROG Strix OC 8GB graphics card, 2 DVD drives, and 1 SDD internal drive and 1 old Western Digital HDD. Fit it all with plenty of room to spare and the spaciousness allows great airflow for cooling throughout the case. 5Oh yeah this case will do most certainlyWhen I decided to build a computer. I took the time and energy to research the parts i was going to use thoroughly and after painstakingly finding a case I liked. I choose this one instead when it popped up on the similar items list of the case I was going to get. This case is well constructed plenty of space for upgrades and has some nice air flow capabilities going on.Lets break it down a little.Case visual design - 5/5 When I first look at it reminds of a cargo crate or even a ammo box. The case is obviously inspired by the military/industrial train of thought with its riveted and construction yard type of look. I actually really like this design as it works well for my taste and gives a the case a more menacing and hefty look and feel as opposed to a super stream lined case. Its a box and makes sure you know it. The plastic Window is also a nice flourish too Case design - 4.5/5 As I already mentioned it is heavily inspired by the military/construction yard line of thinking. This line of thinking translates really well to the case it self as it is almost fully modular. going from the outside in we have press catch releases for the top and front panels which are a nice touch as it allows for easy cleaning of the wire airflow mesh. Both sides with the main one having a nice big window are easily removed using a latch system as opposed to thumb screws once again allowing easy access. the bottom is actually elevated allowing for good airflow to a bottom fed PSU with a nice mag mesh filter to keep it clean. Its also has some handles on the top which are functional allowing you to easily carry it around. however iam not to sure how they would handle when fully loaded. To top it all it has two 5.25" bays for internal mounting and four front usb two of which are 3.0 along with a fan control if you want to use the inbuilt one. I do have to take a half point because the window it self is a type of plastic and I would prefer it to be tempered glass.Internal - 4.5/5 This is a full size tower so the inside of the case is a cave with plenty of room. It has several slots and holes for cable management and with rubber grommets which i like as I don't like bare metal for my cable management. It also has a nice shroud for the PSU which is removable and even allows for a isolated air tunnel form the fans. It has this air scoop again removable for cooling the back side of the case as well though Iam not sure how that would work out yet. It has room for mounting two 3.5" HHD and four 2.5"SSDs ( and additional two if you convert the 3.5" slots) all the drive slots are on the back which is a nice touch as it keeps them out of sight out of mind.A coupe of the downsides are its front panel does have room for 3 fans 120/140 mm but you loose a fan slot if you choose to use the 5.25 bay slots for anything. Second is yes most of the parts come apart allowing it to be modular some of the thumb screws and catches holding them in place are tricky to get to and replace if need be. Another is if using water cooling it may be necessary to remove the air scoop/power shroud and drive bay cage if you use a large rad and reservoir/pumpAir Flow - 4/5 Now here is where it gets interesting the front panel allows for up to 360mm fans and similar sized Rads. Though it may be necessary to remove the shroud or air scoop. the back does 120 and does also fit a 120 rad though it would be a real tight squeeze. The top is where it falls short It does allow up to 360 and with rads but unless you get a super thin one you are most likely going to have to remove the top panels for it to fit.That all being said this is a impressive case and I highly recommend it. Aside from small grievances which I have listed it is a solid choice 5My 2nd choice but ended up better.As a start let me say I wanted the EVO RGB originally, but it was out of stock from Amazon and I wanted it by a certain time. Bought this case and the 3 pack of RGB fans (which went over the RGB case price by $20 or so, but still you have 3 red led fans (I now have 7 fans in case and sadly have to rearrange them again after my cablemod cables arrive due to setting rgb in front instead of top)). While my box did appear that it had a rough time, the case itself was fine. Plenty of space for wire management, two drive bays for HDD and four for SSD (im a M.2 guy though), and the PSU shroud truly makes wire management....easier.. I wont say a breeze. The weight is nothing to scoff at and once you throw a water loop in, think carefully on when you have someone nearby to help you carry it. The PCI cover slots are easy to rearrange as needed which is a bit of a plus. The filters are magnetic and relatively easy to clean. There are only three detracting points for me personally.1: Those corners. Meant to look like carbon fiber but the material is more or less vinyl which as many of students remember, will make a sound to cringe to.2: Not exactly a negative but the glass comes with a protective film. That film when removed will generate quite a bit of static. Be wary of touching your circuits afterward. Discharge after removing film.3: The 32 hex screws that are along the 8 corners have a slight yellowish tinge to them.Unexpected Pro: if you're feeling adventurous and confident enough, you can have the case as a "Floating" pc by attaching proper wiring from your ceiling to the open corners.Edit: 7/29 - Day after receiving. Somehow missed the fact that my RGB fans (purchased seperately) were not running and also missed the fact that I have two three-to-one fan plugs with only three pin sets (The rgb has 4 pins) so I ended up daisy-chaining a few molex plugs included to power those while I debate whether to order a fan hub. Still deeply regretting removing the 3 red led fans that came with the case to the top but waiting for cablemod to arrive today to fully re-arrange fans and do a proper cable management. One thing to note is that even while only having 4 output fans running my system didnt truly get that hot. However with no input fans running it will pull through the gaps on the glass which are not protected by a filter. So in short, this is a pull heavy case; though im still keeping my 4 push and 3 pull config even if it gets a bit dusty easier.Edit: 7/29 - Later that day. So there is a rather painful flaw with this case. With how the front is set the fans will actually try to pull from inside rather than from the gaps in front minimizing how much pull there is. Personally, I am filling the minor gaps with matte black tape (Both sides) and adding another rubber washer on the screws holding the glass to compensate. You can just remove the entire front pane but that seems a bit much. 5Beautiful, but brain dead.Do you like puzzles? Do you have unbelievable manual dexterity? Do you love it when your cable is close, not quite long enough? If so, you will LOVE this case.For the rest of us who want to actually USE their new custom build computer, run. Run far and fast, this case is a huge headache to assemble, and the instructions are nothing more than blurry thumbnail images hinting at what side of the case might have something to do with assembly. Seriously, google the user guide before purchasing this case, if you can't understand it then you better give yourself a couple extra days of assembly time because that 1 page is all you get. And no, the cables are not labelled.It took about an hour just to get the power supply area opened up. Then it took numerous tries to route the power supply cables through the right combination of holes so that it could reach the motherboard connector. The case was so tight, I couldn't get 2 of the motherboard screws installed. And don't even get me started on the fan cables... 10 hours later, I do have a completed case, but it came with a surprise migraine.Seriously, It is a beautiful case, and I love it. But it's clearly made for those who have far more build experience, dexterity, and patience than I. 3Great case! Please read updateThe case looks great, it arrived on time and the packaging was in good shape. I will say that the back handlebar was bent but I'm not knocking of a star for it because I took the handlebars off. The materials used feel solid and i have noticed no damage on it. Overall this is a really good tower although I did use some standoffs on the front window panel (in front of the 3 preinstalled 120mm fans) to allow for more flow air being pulled in.UPDATE: so I came back to add a couple of things as I've modified the case and I also need to mention a few cons that I failed to mention before: 1) this case does in fact have an issue with some atx mobos fitting due to the back fan. I purchased a gigabyte aorus z390 ultra and the heat sink at the top right of this mobo will bump against the back fan, causing you to not be able to install the mobo. To fix this, I just removed the back fan and left it off i can see how this would be an issue for some because they will complain about thermals but I when I have the computer on, I take off the main glass panel exposing the insides and I'm not a computer expert here but when I take that glass panel off everything inside is pretty cool just a little warm to the touch (am wearing gloves when touching any of the parts) so this method has done a lot to help ME with thermals. When I turn the computer off I just replace the glass panel to help prevent dust getting in. Now I know a lot of people are going to say that taking off the glass panel is going to hurt your thermals but after after a couple months of use, my computer parts are still running great even under load and I'm not having any overheating issues. Again this fix worked for me but idk if others experience will differ. I will also not that you do not need mobo standoffs for this case as the dimples inside the case act as standoffs you just have to make sure the mobo is centered on them. I'll come back with another update if I notice or come across anything. Hope this helps and again I'm not a PC expert just providing my personal experience with this case after almost 3 months of use. Overall it's still a great case but I knocked off a star because of having to remove the back fan. Not a deal breaker for me but I can see how for some it would be. 4I especially like how you can hide several hard drives on the ...Pros: It is roomy, surprisingly light for the size, and has some decent cable management design. I especially like how you can hide several hard drives on the covered side, out of view.Cons: It feels flimsy because the top and front covers are held on by magnets. Makes it easy to clean them I guess, but they also keep popping off when I move it.Overall, good case. Wish it felt a little more solid, but it is easier to access stuff, and overall a better design than my last one. Giving it four stars only because I can t give it 4.5. It s good, but not perfect. (Close though.) 4Fantastic For What You Pay For!At $90 this thing is pretty awesome. My choice of cases was between this or the Coolermaster H500, also a great case. This ended up winning out as the H500 is pretty popular and tends to sell out quickly. After receiving this I've decided that this was the right choice. This thing is essentially a full tower minus eatx support in a nice suit. Something to note:!! IMPORTANT !!The case you can receive might not be the one pictured. The product photos display a silver case, mine is black with the big COUGAR logo on the PSU shroud being a light gray that can't be seen under the tinted glass. The front badge is a sexy black and gold instead of black and silver. Its possible that the product photos are from the old Panzer, while the actual product is the Panzer S. There are photos on cougar's website itself in case you want to see.This wasn't a bad thing for me because the black case is honestly a lot better looking. On to the rest of the review.PROS:- Roomy- up to 160mm cpu air cooler or up to 360mm rads up front or up top- easy cable routing- dust filters all over- tempered glass with sensible thumb screws- 3 mediocre red led fans, but I'll take crappy fans over no fans any day- Plenty of screws of all types included, motherboard standoffs were preinstalled with extra in a separate bag just in case (a nice touch)- many zip tie anchorsCons:- You can see your own ugly mug in the glass's reflection.- Case has a tendency to tip if there isn't enough weight inside. Adding your PSU and GPU fixes this for the most part but the feet that the case sits on are set narrower than the width of the case itself- Like all glass, side panels are fingerprint magnets (not really a con, just something worth noting)Pro tip: Install any extra case fans first, as pulling the top and front covers off takes their connected power switch, reset switch, hdd led wires etc., with them. You can also reinstall the cover that sits over the pcie expansion slots screw holes and make it look all sleek again. 4

It has room for mounting two 3.5" HHD and four 2.5"SSDs ( and additional two if you convert the 3.5" slots) all the drive slots are on the back which is a nice touch as it keeps them out of sight out of mind.A coupe of the downsides are its front panel does have room for 3 fans 120/140 mm but you loose a fan slot if you choose to use the 5.25 bay slots for anything. Second is yes most of the parts come apart allowing it to be modular some of the thumb screws and catches holding them in place are tricky to get to and replace if need be. Another is if using water cooling it may be necessary to remove the air scoop/power shroud and drive bay cage if you use a large rad and reservoir/pumpAir Flow - 4/5 Now here is where it gets interesting the front panel allows for up to 360mm fans and similar sized Rads. Though it may be necessary to remove the shroud or air scoop. the back does 120 and does also fit a 120 rad though it would be a real tight squeeze. The top is where it falls short It does allow up to 360 and with rads but unless you get a super thin one you are most likely going to have to remove the top panels for it to fit.That all being said this is a impressive case and I highly recommend it. Aside from small grievances which I have listed it is a solid choice 5My 2nd choice but ended up better.As a start let me say I wanted the EVO RGB originally, but it was out of stock from Amazon and I wanted it by a certain time. Bought this case and the 3 pack of RGB fans (which went over the RGB case price by $20 or so, but still you have 3 red led fans (I now have 7 fans in case and sadly have to rearrange them again after my cablemod cables arrive due to setting rgb in front instead of top)). While my box did appear that it had a rough time, the case itself was fine. Plenty of space for wire management, two drive bays for HDD and four for SSD (im a M.2 guy though), and the PSU shroud truly makes wire management....easier.. I wont say a breeze. The weight is nothing to scoff at and once you throw a water loop in, think carefully on when you have someone nearby to help you carry it. The PCI cover slots are easy to rearrange as needed which is a bit of a plus. The filters are magnetic and relatively easy to clean. There are only three detracting points for me personally.1: Those corners. Meant to look like carbon fiber but the material is more or less vinyl which as many of students remember, will make a sound to cringe to.2: Not exactly a negative but the glass comes with a protective film. That film when removed will generate quite a bit of static. Be wary of touching your circuits afterward. Discharge after removing film.3: The 32 hex screws that are along the 8 corners have a slight yellowish tinge to them.Unexpected Pro: if you're feeling adventurous and confident enough, you can have the case as a "Floating" pc by attaching proper wiring from your ceiling to the open corners.Edit: 7/29 - Day after receiving. Somehow missed the fact that my RGB fans (purchased seperately) were not running and also missed the fact that I have two three-to-one fan plugs with only three pin sets (The rgb has 4 pins) so I ended up daisy-chaining a few molex plugs included to power those while I debate whether to order a fan hub. Still deeply regretting removing the 3 red led fans that came with the case to the top but waiting for cablemod to arrive today to fully re-arrange fans and do a proper cable management. One thing to note is that even while only having 4 output fans running my system didnt truly get that hot. However with no input fans running it will pull through the gaps on the glass which are not protected by a filter. So in short, this is a pull heavy case; though im still keeping my 4 push and 3 pull config even if it gets a bit dusty easier.Edit: 7/29 - Later that day. So there is a rather painful flaw with this case. With how the front is set the fans will actually try to pull from inside rather than from the gaps in front minimizing how much pull there is. Personally, I am filling the minor gaps with matte black tape (Both sides) and adding another rubber washer on the screws holding the glass to compensate. You can just remove the entire front pane but that seems a bit much. 5Beautiful, but brain dead.Do you like puzzles? Do you have unbelievable manual dexterity? Do you love it when your cable is close, not quite long enough? If so, you will LOVE this case.For the rest of us who want to actually USE their new custom build computer, run. Run far and fast, this case is a huge headache to assemble, and the instructions are nothing more than blurry thumbnail images hinting at what side of the case might have something to do with assembly. Seriously, google the user guide before purchasing this case, if you can't understand it then you better give yourself a couple extra days of assembly time because that 1 page is all you get. And no, the cables are not labelled.It took about an hour just to get the power supply area opened up. Then it took numerous tries to route the power supply cables through the right combination of holes so that it could reach the motherboard connector. The case was so tight, I couldn't get 2 of the motherboard screws installed. And don't even get me started on the fan cables... 10 hours later, I do have a completed case, but it came with a surprise migraine.Seriously, It is a beautiful case, and I love it. But it's clearly made for those who have far more build experience, dexterity, and patience than I. 3Great case! Please read updateThe case looks great, it arrived on time and the packaging was in good shape. I will say that the back handlebar was bent but I'm not knocking of a star for it because I took the handlebars off. The materials used feel solid and i have noticed no damage on it. Overall this is a really good tower although I did use some standoffs on the front window panel (in front of the 3 preinstalled 120mm fans) to allow for more flow air being pulled in.UPDATE: so I came back to add a couple of things as I've modified the case and I also need to mention a few cons that I failed to mention before: 1) this case does in fact have an issue with some atx mobos fitting due to the back fan. I purchased a gigabyte aorus z390 ultra and the heat sink at the top right of this mobo will bump against the back fan, causing you to not be able to install the mobo. To fix this, I just removed the back fan and left it off i can see how this would be an issue for some because they will complain about thermals but I when I have the computer on, I take off the main glass panel exposing the insides and I'm not a computer expert here but when I take that glass panel off everything inside is pretty cool just a little warm to the touch (am wearing gloves when touching any of the parts) so this method has done a lot to help ME with thermals. When I turn the computer off I just replace the glass panel to help prevent dust getting in. Now I know a lot of people are going to say that taking off the glass panel is going to hurt your thermals but after after a couple months of use, my computer parts are still running great even under load and I'm not having any overheating issues. Again this fix worked for me but idk if others experience will differ. I will also not that you do not need mobo standoffs for this case as the dimples inside the case act as standoffs you just have to make sure the mobo is centered on them. I'll come back with another update if I notice or come across anything. Hope this helps and again I'm not a PC expert just providing my personal experience with this case after almost 3 months of use. Overall it's still a great case but I knocked off a star because of having to remove the back fan. Not a deal breaker for me but I can see how for some it would be. 4I especially like how you can hide several hard drives on the ...Pros: It is roomy, surprisingly light for the size, and has some decent cable management design. I especially like how you can hide several hard drives on the covered side, out of view.Cons: It feels flimsy because the top and front covers are held on by magnets. Makes it easy to clean them I guess, but they also keep popping off when I move it.Overall, good case. Wish it felt a little more solid, but it is easier to access stuff, and overall a better design than my last one. Giving it four stars only because I can t give it 4.5. It s good, but not perfect. (Close though.) 4Fantastic For What You Pay For!At $90 this thing is pretty awesome. My choice of cases was between this or the Coolermaster H500, also a great case. This ended up winning out as the H500 is pretty popular and tends to sell out quickly. After receiving this I've decided that this was the right choice. This thing is essentially a full tower minus eatx support in a nice suit. Something to note:!! IMPORTANT !!The case you can receive might not be the one pictured. The product photos display a silver case, mine is black with the big COUGAR logo on the PSU shroud being a light gray that can't be seen under the tinted glass. The front badge is a sexy black and gold instead of black and silver. Its possible that the product photos are from the old Panzer, while the actual product is the Panzer S. There are photos on cougar's website itself in case you want to see.This wasn't a bad thing for me because the black case is honestly a lot better looking. On to the rest of the review.PROS:- Roomy- up to 160mm cpu air cooler or up to 360mm rads up front or up top- easy cable routing- dust filters all over- tempered glass with sensible thumb screws- 3 mediocre red led fans, but I'll take crappy fans over no fans any day- Plenty of screws of all types included, motherboard standoffs were preinstalled with extra in a separate bag just in case (a nice touch)- many zip tie anchorsCons:- You can see your own ugly mug in the glass's reflection.- Case has a tendency to tip if there isn't enough weight inside. Adding your PSU and GPU fixes this for the most part but the feet that the case sits on are set narrower than the width of the case itself- Like all glass, side panels are fingerprint magnets (not really a con, just something worth noting)Pro tip: Install any extra case fans first, as pulling the top and front covers off takes their connected power switch, reset switch, hdd led wires etc., with them. You can also reinstall the cover that sits over the pcie expansion slots screw holes and make it look all sleek again. 4
